JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars immediately became favorites to land quarterback Nick Foles following the announcement by Eagles general manager, Howie Roseman, that they will not franchise tag the former Super Bowl MVP.
According to Les Bowen of philly.com, a market for Foles “outside of Jacksonville has not developed” and the Jaguars “absolutely expect” to sign the 30-year-old.
Bowen also stated that Foles may not get the contract he was expecting, considering the Jaguars are the only team bidding on Foles. “Washington, the Giants and Miami were thought to be other possible landing spots for Foles,” Charean Williams included in her report on Pro Football Talk.
Foles was the Super Bowl MVP in 2018 for the Philadelphia Eagles after he gained duties as the starting quarterback, following Carson Wentz going down with an ACL tear. Similar happened in November this past season, when Wentz was ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury, though, Foles only advanced to the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs.[via Pro Football Talk] Follow @EaglesFeast
